Rollover accident near Bel Air sends woman, infant to hospital

A woman and her infant child were taken to Baltimore hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries after their car rolled over on Thomas Run Road and Eagle View Drive, northeast of Bel Air on Tuesday afternoon, the Harford County Sheriff's Office said.

Janelle Dorny, 31, who lives in Pennsylvania, was flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center after the accident, which was reported at about 3 p.m., Sheriff's Office spokesman Eddie Hopkins said.

The 1-year-old child, Layla Burkins, was taken by ambulance to Johns Hopkins Children's Center, he said.

"It is believed that the woman may have lost control of the vehicle coming around the curve," Hopkins said.

Hopkins did not know Dorny's address in Pennsylvania but said she was staying with family in the 1400 block of Wabash Street in Bel Air.

The crash involved just one vehicle, a Toyota 4Runner driven by Dorny, he said.

Thomas Run was shut down for about two hours, according to Hopkins.

The Harford County Volunteer Fire & EMS Association was asking people to avoid the area on its media Facebook page. Thomas Run at Pennington Road was also closed as police continued to investigate the incident.

    It's nice that Sen. Wayne Norman, who represents northern Harford and western Cecil counties, is able to pat Gov. Larry Hogan on the back for allocating $1.97 billion for road work across Maryland, but the senator needs to look beyond Republican Party fraternalism.
